Section of Highway 187 to close for work on dam
Work on Beaver Dam in Carroll County is scheduled to resume on Sept. 18, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has announced. A section of Arkansas Highway 187 that crosses Beaver Dam is scheduled to be closed for two weeks while crews work on the dam's intake gate rehab project.
The closure is being coordinated with emergency services, law enforcement agencies and local authorities. Travelers in the area, should plan alternate routes and allow extra time to reach their destinations.
The recommended alternate route for travelers is Highway 62. Traffic will be controlled with signs and traffic cones until the closed section of the road reopens in late September-early October.
